I rarely bring up relationship issues while they're occurring. And this will likely not stay for long, but I have to vent and ask for advice.
After an unexpected reprieve from having to work last night, I tried to get the boy to hang out with me. He declined, saying he had to get things ready for the week.
I was a little upset, but decided I'd put my job ahead of him a time or two and this one could slide.
Then, when I talked to him tonight, he said he had looked into tickets for my brother's wedding. I was excited that he was up for joining me. Then he continued, explaining he wouldn't go if he had to get his own hotel room.
I had already explained to him that my mom is extremely old-fashioned, and simply did not approve of us shacking up at the wedding.
I even expanded on that tonight, explaining that my brother's wedding is not the appropriate time to test my mom's beliefs. It's about my brother and his fiance. It's their day.
The boy said he couldn't do it based on principal. I think it's ridiculous. I guess I see where he's coming from, but this is a family event, not mine. And it's only one night.
Maybe I am completely in the wrong. But I think at least he should have been open to discussing it. I guess his stance is more important than attending the event with me.
Maybe this should tell me something.
